I have gone through the cloudera manager documentation, every where mentioned that cloudera autogenerate a keytab for services which are installed in the cloudera manager
We have developed a small component. Is there any way to autogenerate a keytab for the component using cloudera manager without adding as service in cloudera manager?

You are asking if Cloudera Manager can provide a management function for a service it does not manage.
For services that use Kerberos, Cloudera Manager handles keytabs individually per principal. When working with multiple principals it makes a call for each principal and not as a batch. The resulting keytabs are stored and distributed to the roles as required.
It is not possible to manage keytabs, including generate them, for an unmanaged service.
